This is our old friend Finger Licking at the Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area on Long Island, New York. I took these photos shortly after his migration back to the New York Metro area this spring. He arrived much later than the other great egrets, possibly itís getting to be a tough trip for him.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

1 for me Morris, I find it to be the strongest comp and it pulls my eye in the strongest.

Amazing! #1 is tack sharp. I did not know that D200 with 80-400 and tc1.4 can give that result. Of course great photog behind the view finder.

Morris- these are all excellent and the close-ups are scary close!
My favorite is #3. Wow! He looks like a tough customer.

Nice study on the eye, Morris.
The first works best for me. #3 needs just a little more room on top.
The IF is very cool.
